    upstairs

    Suppose, I am staying in 2nd floor and my cousin is staying in 5th floor.

    I went to 5th floor to my cousin house.

    Can I say, (I went upstairs to my cousin house?)

    Please help me.

    Re: upstairs

    Presumably you are both in apartments/flats in a block?

    You could say "go upstairs" to the higher flat/apartment. It just as usual to say "I go/went up to"

    Thank you Anglika.

    I thought, apartments and flats are one and the same.

    Is this different?
